Mission: The Bach Aria Soloists is the adventurous ensemble dedicated to bringing the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach, the Baroque, and Contemporary to new life through Community Concerts, signature Hauskonzerts, world-class collaborations and BachReach education.
Geographic areas served: Kansas-Missouri region
Programs: Collaboration is our mantra. In 2006, Elizabeth Suh Lane and Elizabeth Koeppen, Principal Dancer & Assistant Director of the world-renowned Parsons Dance in New York, collaborated to create Accompagnata, a ViolinDance, fusing solo violin selections from Bach’s monumental Six Sonatas and Partitas for Unaccompanied Violin with modern dance.   In 2007, the Bach Aria Soloists brought the world's authority on Bach, Christoph Wolff, an Adams University Professor at Harvard, to Kansas City in a sensational BAS event which captivated the record-breaking audience at the Kansas City Public Library. This was his first appearance in KC and was a sellout.
In 2009, BAS  featured  the  highly-successful world premiere, "Baroque in Motion" collaboration with contemporary dance, from the Owen/Cox Dance Group. We offered an extraordinary free concert series with the Kansas City Public Library including Chamber Music Mosaic and Notes & Letters, featuring veteran actor/baritone, Robert Brand reciting letters from composers whose works we performed.  We engaged numerous outstanding guest artists all year.  The 2010 Season, Bach Aria Soloists' 10th Anniversary, highlights the March, 2010 performances, "Inspired by Bach".  This collaboration with composer, conductor and St. Paul's Sunday Radio Host,  Bill McGlaughlin, delivered an unfogettable program whereby, master of ceremonies, McGlaughlin introduced the stories behind the music of Bach, Bartok, Villa-Lobos, probing the minds of the BAS artists, creating a lively dialogue between musicians, Bill, and audience in a live radio show concert.   "Your spectacular group is doing great music in just the right way!"
